Edna E. Lockwood Relaunch

A highlight of this year's OysterFest at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on Oct. 27 was the re-launch of the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood. Her nine-log hull was restored by CBMM shipwrights and apprentices over the past two years. Edna Lockwood, the last boat of her kind to harvest oysters, is the queen of CBMM’s floating fleet of historic boats and a National Historic Landmark. She returns to the Chesapeake Bay for her new job as a floating classroom.
